Thank you in advance!
1. If nothing is mentioned as far as wheels go, what would be the most likely style? When I bought the car in 1981, it already had Cragar style 5-spoke chrome wheels. About 1983 I bought a set of NOS 14x6 Magnum 500's from Sanderson Ford in Glendale, AZ. Those are still on the car and look fine, but I've toyed with the idea of going back to "original". As a side note, the Marti report does state the optional F70x14 whitewall tires were ordered.

2. For the hot water transfer tube (goes to the heater core over/along the right valve cover on the 4V 351C), is it painted Ford blue (as the engine), or does it stay plain metal? My original is sadly long gone, but I have purchased the replacement. In most pix of engine compartments, it's either not there or not in sharp enough detail to tell.

best
Hank

Thanks much. I also posted over there and did get an answer (blue for the tube). Still, if anybody else has input, always happy to have more info - even if it just confirms what others say. (y)

Wheels for a base model 70 Mustang would be the standard stamped steel wheel with the dog dish hub cap. Full wheel covers and any other wheel option would show up on the Marti Report. You mention your car is a 351C-4V, so it should have 14X7. Typically, the hubcap-only cars had rims that were painted body color.
